It's an option. So if you want to cover your dependents (which you also aren't forced to do), you can now cover them until they turn 27.
you don't seem to understand the bill you are vehemently against very well. how can you be sure you hate it if you don't even know much about it?
I don't think you understand how the funding for Obamacare works.
How is Obamacare paid for? TAXES, TAXES, TAXES.
If you want abortions covered, you have that choice in obamacare. But I, as a taxpayer, do not. Even though i opt not to use that policy in Obamacare, my portion of taxes, still pays into EVERY Obamacare users premiums. Ergo, i pay for every humans healthcare that is in Obamacare. The costs are spread to me, you, and every other taxpayer.
Therefore, i pay for whatever coverage you may want, despite me not wanting to pay into it. And if i choose the private route, i must pay a penalty. if my company provided insurance chooses the private route, then my company gets penalized, which it has been, and our health insurance deductions are increasing next year as a direct result.
This is the hazard of socialized health insurance.
